<p>I have always wanted to like Fear Factory as much as people tell me I should. And I thought that <em>Demanufacture</em> was pretty okay. But mostly, I just getbored listening to Fear Factory. It all just kind of blends together for me.
<p>And so it goes with <em>Mechanize</em>. Last week a friend told me that she doesn’t really like Fear Factory, either, and she thinks the album is super; so I listened for a second time. Nope. Doin’ nothing for me. And now I’m listening as I type this. Boy, that Gene Hoglan sure can play the drums, huh? I think he has a real future ahead of him.<div class=

Look. It’s not terrible. I just don’t get why people think it’s so great.

Mechanize comes out February 9 on Candlelight, but it is now streaming in full here (but only if you have a Facebook account… blurgh). Give it a listen, and then tell me why I’m an idiot for not seeing the genius of this album. And next week, Sammy O’Hagar should have a thoughtful review from a person who actually understands this band.
